Geneticists today reported discovering the missing link between Mexican men and the chupacabra mountain goat. Researchers from MIT (Man, It's Tested) laboratories say that they were tipped off when one of the researchers on the team observed a Mexican man on a roofing crew in North Carolina.
"He was just standing on the edge of a 45 degree-angle pitch roof looking down and talking to another worker as if he were standing flat footed on the ground," the researcher said.
It was also observed by the same researcher that all men on the same roofing crew could attach the ridge cap and roll out the new shingles on the same roof without ever having to get down on their knees or nail a two x four into the roof for extra footing.
A closer observation of the men's feet revealed startling results. When examined, their feet were shaped like goat hoofs slanting downward and tapering off to sharp points on the ends. The men's feet were also reported to having toes that curled under rather than stuck straight out like normal.
When asked for an explanation of this occurrence, researchers say they don't know what may have caused the Mexican men's bodies to adapt in this fashion. But information is being given to Craig Ventor of the Human G-Nome project for analysis.
"We think that it might be a marriage of the chupacabra's instincts and the 'survival of the fittest' mentality that is so prevalent in the world right now," said researcher Dr. Pygmalion Pythagoras. "We have witnessed some pretty grotesque and unusual sights with this kind of marriage."
The aberrations that Dr. Pythagoras was talking about include: people growing knives out of their backs, politicians growing extra hands, feet and bank accounts, babies blowing bubbles out of their mouths that expand over their whole bodies keeping them safe for a lifetime, people making payments for luxury cars, fashion-designer clothes, and McMansions with payments that come literally out of their asses, people driving Hummer's and movie stars with extra breasts and pusses.
Researchers didn't say were they thought the human race was heading, but did offer the following books to read in preparation:
